Question

Is there anything like "DASH Restore" in the pipeline?

Where a customer has a requirement to restore data from a Secondary Copy, rather than restoring all of the data directly from that Secondary Copy, it would be useful if there were an option to use something akin to the DASH Copy process to transmit only the blocks that are not available via the Primary Copy.

I could see this being really beneficial for restoring back to remote office locations, and for reducing egress costs when recovering from cloud (especially from Archive tier).

Alternatively, something like a Copy Back option could work, where jobs can be copied back to the Primary Copy, leveraging DASH Copy.

Hello @Erase4ndReuseMedia 

I think the most likely option to be added for this is the copy back but currently that is not a feature.

Support cannot comment on any new or planned road map currently but there is nothing stopping you reaching out to accounts and ask and probe. 

Kind regards

Thanks @Albert Williams 

Out of curiosity, does Development look at the Community Forums? 

I would prefer to use this platform to submit CMRs for general improvements and the like, rather than burdening our Account Manager.

Hello @Erase4ndReuseMedia 


They do review and track Community but its not an official chain. 

The correct and official way to get your improvement acknowledged is a CMR. 

 

Kind regards
